OCTOBER 2022 I SMT007 MAGAZINE 47 As they entered, Maggie said, "Hola, Sue y Andy. ¿Le gustaría ir a México y evaluar una empresa para que la compremos?" For those whose Spanish is a little weak: "Hello, Sue and Andy. Would you like to go to Mexico and eval- uate a company for us to buy?" Although they all spoke Spanish (Sue had really worked on hers with her mom lately), Maggie reverted to English, "Business is so booming that we are considering buying a small assembly plant in Mexico. We want to send Chuck Tower to perform an evaluation but felt you two could help him as you speak Spanish." "Yikes! I'm not sure my Spanish is that good," Sue warned them. "You're too modest," Andy chimed in. "You've come a long way in the last 18 months." Maggie, Andy, and Sue started discussing the details. Patty chimed in, "Ivy University has a self- study course. Sue and Andy, if you write a detailed report of what you learned during this project, I'm quite sure it can count as your first course." e meeting ended.
